The sound system provided by Leipzig-based ProTech GmbH, was based around two main arrays of eight MILO high-power curvilinear array loudspeakers and two MILO 120 high-power expanded coverage curvilinear array loudspeakers each. Six M'elodie ultracompact high-power curvilinear array loudspeakers were used for frontfill, while two ground stacks of six M1D ultracompact curvilinear array loudspeakers each covered sidefill duties.
Further back in the hall, another hang of eight M1D cabinets, along with two arrays of six M'elodie boxes, were utilized as delay speakers. Low frequencies were covered by six 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofers, stacked in pairs at the left, center, and right of the stage, and configured to project in a cardioid pattern to reduce low-frequency levels on stage. A pair of Galileo loudspeaker management systems controlled the system's timing and distribution. Onstage, a pair of MM-4 miniature wide range loudspeakers provided monitors for the orchestra's conductor. For more information visit www.meyersound.com.
